The Ranks of Global Billionaires – Not All Billionaires Are Made Equal


Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates, Two gentlemen fighting back and forth for the title of world richest man These two individuals seem very very similar, for starters of course they are both billionaires, an elite worldwide club with around 2 and a half thousand members, they are both white, male tech entrepreneurs, from the united states, and even more specifically from Seattle, and even more specifically their primary residence is in Medina a same small town just outside of Seattle. So it looks like these two are pretty similar, but in reality their fortunes couldn’t be more different.
